May is Melanoma Awareness Month

Prevent Your Risk:

*Use a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or more sunscreen.  Apply frequently and liberally.  Don’t forget UV radiation causes sun damage in winter and cloudy days too.

*Wear protective clothing, hat and sunglasses.

*Seek shade, avoid mid-day sun.

*Never, never use tanning beds.  Melanoma is the number one cancer diagnosed in young adults (25-29).  This is attributed to tanning bed use.

*Protect your children.  Just one blistering sunburn in childhood or adolescence doubles their risk of developing melanoma later.
